Tyrion Lannister is the man.

Game of Thrones fans already know this, of course, but Peter Dinklage further cemented his character's awesomeness with a little help from Coldplay—yes, that Coldplay! Chris Martin and co., wrote a Game of Thrones musical sketch, which Dinklage teased brilliantly in this promotional video for Red Nose Day, a "campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh."

In the genius teaser clip, Dinklage rocks out as Tyrion, crooning on about the multiple characters who've been killed off of the HBO series so far: "Remember Ned Stark /  He was a lot of fun / But he didn't make it past season one!"

He continues: "Robert Baratheon was part of that crew / But he never made it to season two / The King of the North was cool, you said / Another favorite that ended up dead!"

"You thought Joffrey had to survive / He ain't in the credits for season five," he sings.  "Baby you know I'm the man for all seasons / Characters get cut for various reasons / Some people's parts just ain't very long / But not me, I'm still going strong!"

Is Dinklage trying to tell us something? Has George R.R. Martin been sharing secrets with him? Hmm...

Fortunately, we don't have to wait long to see more of Coldplay's Game of Thrones Musical! Red Nose Day's telecast will feature the entire sketch film, so make sure to tune in on Thursday, May 21 at 8pm PT/ET on NBC to catch it!
